“Optimization of the PHS-Process” on September 28th and 29th 2017

GRUNDIG AKADEMIE and Hotforming Academy, in cooperation with TELOS GLOBAL, are very pleased to announce NAFTA TRAINING CENTER FOR HOT STAMPING TECHNOLOGY - 6th PHS Suppliers Forum - “Optimization of the PHS-Process”, at TELOS Global, Caryville, TN, 37714 USA, on September 28th and 29th 2017.




When asked about the reasoning behind TELOS GLOBAL’s collaboration and cooperation with GRUNDIG AKADEMIE, Richard Teague, CEO, said, “Telos Global is very excited to be selected as the NAFTA PHS Training center in cooperation with the GRUNDIG AKADEMIE as this gives us unique exposure to those that are directly involved in the day to day operations, challenges and ideas surrounding PHS technology.” He went on to express, “the importance of addressing the high cost of capital equipment by showing a quicker ROI through more efficient equipment and processes that yield higher thru-put. The second to address the high cost of the manufacturing and maintenance PHS tooling and secondary production processes.”


We would like to invite you to participate in this two-day event (Thursday to Friday) and encourage you to explore topics including; Requests & Requirements, Blank Materials & Coatings, Trends & Development and more. All topics will be presented by industry leaders Luke Reini & Matt Enloe (GM), Richard Teague (TELOS GLOBAL), Jim Dykeman (Honda), and many more.

Take the opportunity to meet specialists in the field of "Simulating Warm and Hotforming Processes of Aluminium Alloys".

The GRUNDIG AKADEMIE prides itself in having a highly successful and OEM-accepted training and qualification program for hot forming as well as PHS. Timothy Schiller, Product Development, TOWER International said,

“The GRUNDIG AKADEMIE training we participated in was filled with the latest knowledge of the hot stamping process. Each session reviewed the theory behind the process, as well as practical examples and lab demonstrations that supported the information.” He concluded that it was, “very worthwhile training.”

The GRUNDIG AKADEMIE PHS-Trainings focus on a particular aspect of technology and provide comprehensive access to valuable and extensive knowledge on hot sheet metal forming. Previous training attendee, Paul J. Belanger, R&D Manager North America, GESTAMP had this to say about the Compact Training on Hot Stamping Technology,

“The content provided a great overview of the competence and depth of knowledge offered by the GRUNDIG AKADEMIE... The vital importance of detailed process control was clearly evident through all of the training programs and was very eye opening to many of the PHS suppliers.”

With the present growing concerns over carbon emissions, PHS offers an environmentally fiscal and efficient production value, while excelling in effectiveness and quality. Through the Hotforming Academy, GRUNDIG AKADEMIE has been able to bring its knowledge and expertise to an international market, as well as partner with other companies to further enrich the quality and reach of its trainings.

We look forward to seeing you in September for two days full of hands-on training, networking, and learning.
